Democratic Congressman Introduces Gun Control Scheme to Allow Cities to Trample All Over Second Amendment Rights

Published

on

Democratic Congressman William Lacy Clay is introducing a gun control bill that aims to reduce gun violence in urban centers like his hometown of St. Louis.

Despite obstacles in the Republican-led Senate and White House, Clay believes his bill, the Local Public Health and Safety Protection Act, can make it out of Congress.

This bill, which is co-sponsored by Congresswoman Robin Kelly, requires states receiving Department of Justice public safety grants to pass their own gun control laws. Clay said that Missouri is among 43 states with pre-emption laws that prohibit cities from having gun laws stricter than their statewide laws.

Clay believes that this measure is among many changes needed to address the so-called “epidemic” of gun violence in urban centers.

“In St. Louis and across the nation, we are faced with an ugly, obscene inescapable truth: Gun violence is a public health emergency,” the Congressman declared.

Clay added, “I’m tired of the violence, I’m tired of the excuses, and I’m tired of our state legislature being either unable or too frightened to do something about gun violence because they’re being held hostage by the NRA (National Rifle Association).”

According to the Congressman, this bill would allow cities to pass the gun control crowd’s favorite gun control measures such as universal background checks, ammo restrictions, assault weapons bans, and bans on large-capacity magazines.

Thankfully, the partisan makeup of D.C. is such that radical gun control schemes like Clay’s bill will likely not make it to President Trump’s desk.

The real battles anyways are fighting against the so-called “red flag” gun confiscation legislation, which happens to have bipartisan support.

No Compromise Gun Lobby Calls Out Congress to Oppose Federal Gun Grab

Published

On July 30, 2020, the National Association for Gun Rights raised awareness about gun control legislation introduced by Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.

Under the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020”, the federal government would implement a series of gun control measures that were recently enacted in the state of Virginia. In their press release, NAGR argued that this plan would “strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment and due process rights.”

At its core, the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020” will effectively nationalize Virginia’s new gun control laws. This will include the state’s “red flag” gun confiscation order, a one-handgun-a-month law, and a ban on private gun transactions between lawful gun owners. Virginia’s gun grabs kicked off protests from tens of thousands of gun owners at the state capitol in Richmond, Virginia early in 2020. NAGR noted that “Senators Kaine and Warner want to impose them on the rest of the nation.”

“Just when law-abiding citizens are purchasing firearms in record numbers to protect themselves and their families, tone-deaf Democrats are squealing for more gun control,” declared Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.

Brown announced that his staff is already working to mobilize more than 4.5 million National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters to reach out to Kentucky  Senator Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate to oppose this gun control scheme and all other gun grabs.

“With police stations literally on fire and criminals taking over our streets, it should be clear that citizens are responsible for defending ourselves,” remarked Brown. “Gun control is never a good idea and pushing it right now is sheer insanity.”
